Help with trimming a LOG file

Recommended Posts

rsmedude

Hello everyone,

I have been a member for a while but relatively new to posting to the message boards. I am also still relatively new to using AutoIt. I am working on a script that will help keep a program running on one of my file servers.

Here is what I have accomplished so far looking at different threads on the site already.

1. A check performed every 60 seconds to see if the application is running. (ultimately to be changed to something like once an hour)

2. Write a log file that shows either the check was performed with no issue or the application had to be restarted.

Both of those are working fine and I have to say that ever since I started using this script the program has not crashed!

My next phase is to figure out how to make the script check and trim the log file. I am obviously not trying to make a log file that becomes bloated and chews up a large amount of hard drive space. The main purpose of the log file is so that I know if the application has been restarted. I am thinking have the script trim the file every 30 day maybe. Another words delete everything in the log file 30 days prior to the current day. So if someone can help me out here as I am not a scripting genius. Unfortunately I only know enough to be dangerous if you will.

I also have another part of this script I want to write but first I want to get the log file working just the way I want. I am attaching a sample of what I have working so far.

Thank you for any and all help folks.

Respectfully,

James

 

#include <File.au3>

 While 1 ;Start Loop

   If ProcessExists("atcsmon.exe") Then

   ;~ Open the logfile in write mode.

   Local $hFile = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", 1)

   _FileWriteLog($hFile, "ATCS check was completed and found running by the AutoIt3 Script") ; Write to the logfile passing the filehandle returned by FileOpen.

   FileClose($hFile) ; Close the filehandle to release the file.

   Else ;If Process does not exist

   Run("C:\atcs_monitor\atcsmon.exe", "", @SW_SHOWMINIMIZED)

   ;~ Open the logfile in write mode.

   Local $hFile = FileOpen(@ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", 1)

   _FileWriteLog($hFile, "*ALERT* *ALERT* *ALERT* ATCS was restarted by the AutoIt3 Script") ; Write to the logfile passing the filehandle returned by FileOpen.

   FileClose($hFile) ; Close the filehandle to release the file.

   EndIf



   Sleep(60000) ;sleep 60 seconds

 WEnd ;Close Loop

Perhaps you could use an INI and use a time stamp as the key.

You could use something like (untested):

#include <Date.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
$sTimeStamp = _NowCalc()
$sEvent = "Alert or Pass text"
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", "Event_Log", $sTimeStamp, $sEvent)



;to delete old entries
$aIniData = IniReadSecion(@ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", "Event_Log")
For $i = 0 to Ubound($aIniData) - 1
    If _DateDiff("D", $aIniData[$i][0], _NowCalc()) > 30 Then
        _ArrayDelete($aIniData, $i)
        $i -= 1 ;item $i + 1 just became item $i so go back and check the new values in array slot $i
    Else
        ExitLoop ; if the entry is newer than 30 days , stop searching
    EndIf
Next    
IniWriteSection( @ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", "Event_Log", $aIniData , 1)

If this is a true monitoring script, why not write to the Event Viewer. You could even set up an email alert to yourself if the event matches certain criteria.

Shane0000 - I will look at this and give it a try I suppose I will have to "falsify" some log entries to make sure I am implementing this correctly!

JLogan3o13 - I never thought about going that rout. Well let me rephrase that. I thought about the email alert (more like a text message) if the application goes down. However I never thought about putting it into the system log. Do you have an example of how that would be done in the scripting?

Sorry I am learning as I go with this entire project.

Thank you for the help!

Respectfully,

James

There are a number of different ways to do it, but In it's simplest form, you can write the event with a ShellExecute:

 

ShellExecute("EventCreate.exe", '/L Application /T Information /SO "MyApp" /ID 666 /D "My event Message"', "", "", @SW_HIDE)

You can also use the _EventLog_* functions, specifically _EventLog_Open and _EventLog_Report.

Perhaps you could use an INI and use a time stamp as the key.

You could use something like (untested):

#include <Date.au3>
#include <Array.au3>
$sTimeStamp = _NowCalc()
$sEvent = "Alert or Pass text"
IniWrite(@ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", "Event_Log", $sTimeStamp, $sEvent)



;to delete old entries
$aIniData = IniReadSecion(@ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", "Event_Log")
For $i = 0 to Ubound($aIniData) - 1
    If _DateDiff("D", $aIniData[$i][0], _NowCalc()) > 30 Then
        _ArrayDelete($aIniData, $i)
        $i -= 1 ;item $i + 1 just became item $i so go back and check the new values in array slot $i
    Else
        ExitLoop ; if the entry is newer than 30 days , stop searching
    EndIf
Next    
IniWriteSection( @ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", "Event_Log", $aIniData , 1)

 

Ok I tried this. and I got the following error.

Line 106 (File "C:\Users\GMS\Desktop\ATCS_UP_CHECK_REV4-temp_test.au3"):

$aIniData = IniReadSecion(@ScriptDir & "\ATCS_AutoIt.log", "Event_Log")

$aIniData = ^ ERROR

 

Error: Unknown function name.

I am not sure what the deal is with this. I suspect it has something to do with the part of the argument that has "Event_Log" in it. I did try messing with it but I didn't have any success. Shane0000, if I could get a little help debugging this I would appreciate it.

 

JLogan3o13, I have not totally thrown your suggestion out the window. I am interested in using that but mainly for the error (if the program has to be restarted) but I think I am going to hold off on that for the moment. I am also interested in using that system so that I can have the server send me an email (text) to my phone so that I know if it puked. This way I can remote in and make sure it actually came back up for me.

 

Respectfully,

James

Try IniReadSecTion(... instead.

      About logs, it is a few years that I drag a couple of functions between one script and another, so finally I decided to write down my first UDF to optimize my scripts.
      Main focus is to keep it simple, so you have just to include _gollog.au3 and call:
      GOLLOG("a line of text"), and start logging.
      If your script is without GUI the log will be only written to disk, if you have a GUI you can initialize an edit control :
      GOLLOG_INI($guititle, $left, $top, $width, $height)
      and GOLLOG() will write your log both in an auto generated EDIT control in your $guititle GUI and disk; also GOLLOG_INI() will AUTO-create a GUI (if it doesn't exist $guititle) with a screen log if you want !
      The majority of options (colors, fonts, position of logs ) are default-defined, but you can initialize them with GOLLOG_INI(), is all documented in the UDF and partially in the example.
      There is also a function:
      GOLzipLOG($n)
      to ZIP logs older than $n months, based on the UDF (also included in attachments) _zip.udf by @wraithdu
      the UDF code:

      2016/08/22 12:44:18 > Process: [RUNNING] [ACTIVE] 2016/08/22 12:48:35 > Process: [WAS NOT RUNNING] 2016/08/22 13:40:00 > Process: [FAILED] 2016/08/22 14:01:10 > Process: [WAS NOT RUNNING] I am looping through the Log file for  the word "FAILED"
      I then want to get all lines that have "FAILED" and get their TIME
       
      My Current code to get this far:
      If FileExists($fileLog) Then $contents = FileRead($fileLog) If @error Then MsgBox(0, 'File Error', $fileLog & ' could not be read.') Else For $i = 1 To _FileCountLines($fileLog) $result = StringInStr($contents,$search) If $result >= 1 Then $filteredLine = FileReadLine($fileLog,$i) If StringInStr($filteredLine,$search) Then ConsoleWrite($filteredLine & @CRLF) ; this gets me the results I want sans the time parse EndIf Else ConsoleWrite( $search & " not found!" & @CRLF) EndIf Next EndIf EndIf For this part:
      If StringInStr($filteredLine,$search) Then ConsoleWrite($filteredLine & @CRLF) ; this gets me the results I want sans the time parse EndIf OUTPUT: 2016/08/22 13:40:00 > Process: [FAILED] I dont understand how I read the time in that output?
       
      I have tried _DateTimeFormat - Dont think this applies 
      Tried _DateDiff - I dont have a the date yet so this doesnt work
       
      Would love if someone could tell me if I am thinking is the wrong direction and possibly lead me down the correct path to light side of the force

      Hi there - quite a beginner to codding so please bare with me...
      i am writing an autoit code that will be running 24/7 executing various tasks every 10-20 minutes. it suppose to run on unattended server but i would like to occasionally remote log in and do stuff on the server without disturbing the autoit script (while the autoit script is in Sleep count). to achieve this I will need to know at what point in the commands run it is  and how long roughly until the next command (I use Sleep in between commands)...
       so, is there a way to create a monitor that shows me the last command executed and how long of the Sleep is left (like in a small window or in the windows task bar)?
      failing that any idea how can I utilize the FileWriteLog function to keep updating an always open text file ?
       
      thanks in advance
      michel
